“The Cheese Valleys – The Birthplace of the Orobic Cheese-making Tradition”, focuses on the Traditionaland Creative Knowledge of the Orobic Valleys (Bergamo, Lecco e Sondrio), who have demonstrated, for
more than a thousand years of evolution, that cheese is not a mere mixture of ingredients (milk, rennet and
salt) or a set of tastes and flavors. Cheese making is instead an anthropological and cultural heritage, made
of people, expertise and traditional practices that includes the continuous activity of men and animals
which have marked the time and the lives of the peoples of the Orobic Valleys, years after years.
